Ye Shall Know Them by Their Spreadsheets Cognitive Engineering

    • Science

Spreadsheets, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations: do the ways people format these file types tell us something about the way they think, analyse or organise information? Or do they tell us more about ourselves, when we get frustrated by others' formatting or lack thereof?

In this week's podcast, we delve into the use of common applications and discuss the importance of formatting and structure, and whether this is linked to the quality of our analysis.

A few things we mentioned in this podcast:


- Tidy Desk or Messy Desk? Each Has Its Benefits https://www.psychologicalscience.org/news/releases/tidy-desk-or-messy-desk-each-has-its-benefits.html
- Orderliness/Disorderliness Is Mentally Associated With Construal Level and Psychological Distance https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6880731/
